Hard to say, because everyone will expect different things, I guess. I would like to see an easy, simple migration tool (got a pretty good idea of it actually, kind of press one button, select the old file, done).
About @petrmacs importer: fabulous tool as is, and likely will even get much better.... My vision here would be that I could call the importer with one button click within excel, choose file to import (my settings have been saved before) and it will import whatever I want....

Maybe you're not coding, but who should find all the bugs if not you.
Honestly, I think you have every right to say 'we'! Without you this whole thing would be nowhere close to the current status....
to explain a bit more:
it migrates your values from journal tab, fixes the format (I could do a tool only for that if anyone needs to fix format more often without importing)
Method list and instrument list as well as starting account balance are also migrated.
Did I miss anything?

Migration: Use the f§*/%g tool!

beta17s journal tab is really slow.. is this because of the MAEs being filled in as well as everything else(i usually dont have those things filled in on my journal) also the dates lines that fill in between the trades are filled in all the way to row 64 even tho there arnt any trades past row 3..
also when it copies the journal from an older version it opens and closes it. do we know if when it closes it, it doesnt save changes? that would be nice so we know so we know nothing has happened to our older journal.
dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

My idea was to have some kind of tool that would allow me to log notes as I trade. Imagine the scenario:
1 the platform is open on one screen, while on the other screen I could open the log.
2 when there is a pattern emerging, I could open up the trade log screen and start logging the thoughts. Psychologically wise I always forget what were my thoughts if I record them after a long time. Ideally I would want to write couple of words immediately.
3 the mandatory information to be entered would be the instrument and direction. The timestamp of the log could be roughly matched with the imported "technical" data from the trading platform export (let's say minutes).
I would like to make it easy to use for everyone. The suggestions are welcome.
Feel free to send here your sketches as well. (the tool I have used is Balsamiq mockups)
In the meantime, I want ti finish the trade grouping in the importer.
